Here’s a sampling of some of the things to see and do in and around Saint George:
It is impossible to discuss Saint George without covering its marquee event — the World Grits Festival. The festival started in the 80’s after it was discovered that Dorchester County (where Saint George is located) consumes more grits per capita than anywhere else in the country. This annual event now attracts more than 30,000 fans of this southern food to Saint George. With activities ranging from Grits eating contests, grits-themed games and activities, live music, a “rolling in the grits” contest for kids and the crowning of “miss Grits,” the festival offers a great deal for foodies and families alike.
While in town, make sure to stop by the historic Lourie Theater located downtown to take in a show. Originally a silent movie house, this classic theater was recently renovated and now plays host to live music and plays.
If you are willing to take a short drive out of town, a visit to Colleton State Park affords visitors an opportunity to experience South Carolina’s natural beauty up close. Visitors can cool off by going for a swim, or spend a few relaxing hours fishing. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, rent a canoe or kayak and paddle out from the Park down the Editso river, one of the longest blackwater rivers in the country. For those looking to stay on dry land, the park also features a great trail for nature walks and bird watching.
